Is this the beginning of the end for President Mugabe?

Recent mounting pressure on President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe reached a fevered pitch this weekend, after he read the wrong speech at parliament’s opening session. Instead of reading his intended remarks, Mugabe, now 91, re-read a previous speech. But today he called parliament together and made them listen to “the right speech”.
